Vlado Perlemuter

Vlado Perlemuter was born in Lithuania on May 26, 1904 and moved to Paris in 1907. He became a pupil at the Paris Conservatoire in 1917 and won first prize at the age of 15. He also studied with Ravel and Cortot, becoming the first to play all of the former's works in public at two recitals. World War II interrupted Perlemuter's career, but it resumed thereafter and he began playing again throughout Europe. His touring also took him to North America and Japan. In 1951, Perlemuter became a professor at the Paris Conservatoire, where he remained until 1977. Perlemuter also recorded extensively. He died on September 4, 2002.
